Caterpillar products are built to be rebuilt. They are designed to withstand heavy-duty operating conditions and to be restored and used for multiple lifecycles, reducing the need for raw materials and associated GHG emissions. Designing products and components to be used throughout multiple service lifecycles is the essence of our remanufacturing approach across multiple products and brands.
*It is recommended to replace before failure. Replacements after failure may result in partial credit.
